Endoscopy results today - mild erythematous/exudative with no bleeding in antrum. What does this mean??

Endoscopy results: endoscopy reports are difficult to interpret without seeing the results of the clinical setting and any biopsy results or photographs taken. Having said that, the description you give suggests that there was a mild amount of redness and mucus in the last portion of the stomach. The significance of this is unclear, and can best be determined by talking to your endoscopist. Good luck. ...Read more

How long can you go without treatment for a bleeding ulcer the doctor told me I have one last week but the insurance company still hasn't ok endoscopy.?

How long can you go without treatment for a bleeding ulcer the doctor told me I have one last week but the insurance company still hasn't ok endoscopy.?

No easy answer: If you continue vomiting blood or having large black bm's it should be done now, go to the er. If you see no blood or black bm's and are not more pale or get dizzy, it may not be an emergency. The longer away from the bleed the less likely they will be able to give you a reason for it. As mentioned Omeprazole will decrease the gastric acidity and sooth and possibly heal the ulcer over time. ...Read more

I had a endoscopy revealed Chronic Antral Gastritis, Can you explain this diagnosis, What is a Good Diet Plan. As I have constant dull pain.

Would an upper GI endoscopy reveal celiac disease?

Depends: A person would need to be consuming at least some gluten on a daily basis for 3 weeks prior to the studies for a biopsy to obtain tissue consistent with the diagnosis. That could be as little as a slice of wheat bread/day, but someone who has been avoiding gluten can make the study less accurate. Just looking (endoscopy) is not diagnostic. ...Read more

Hi im 5 weeks 6 days according to lmp. Had bleeding early today. Blood test revealed hCG of 26. Could this be a miscarriage. Test again in 2 days?

Depends: If your dates are correct, then an HCG at 56/7 weeks should be higher and might indicate a chemical pregnancy or a miscarriage. However, if your dates are not correct, this might be an implantation bleed or a threatened miscarriage (unlikely) a repeat HCG in 2 or 3 days would be helpful. Decreasing, it is probably miscarriage but would follow the hcgs until less than 5. If rising follow to + u/s. ...Read more
